Publication: Visualised inspection system for monitoring environmental anomalies during daily operation and maintenance

8 July 2020

Abstract screenshot_2020-08-14_at_17.31.51.png Visual inspection and human judgement form the cornerstone of daily operations and maintenance (O&M) services activities carried out by facility managers nowadays. Recent advances in technologies such as building information modelling (BIM), distributed sensor networks...

Analysing the social context to transforming construction through digital innovation

The construction and housing industries lag behind most other fields in taking advantage of new technologies. Transforming construction is a social, cultural, economic and political challenge and not just a technical problem. Transforming construction through academic research, therefore, requires...

Crowdsourcing Data in Mining Spatial Urban Activities

This project aims to understand how check-in data from social media is distributed around Cambridge and what kinds of spatial segmentation can be identified. It validated the social media data on urban segregation using observation and questionnaires. We conducted pilots at Cambridge in the UK and...

Exploiting traffic data to improve asset management and citizen quality of life

This project builds on a tool developed by two Cambridge PhD students that allows for the generation of high-resolution geographical data heat maps. These heat maps can help to solve optimisation problems relevant to citizens’ everyday lives. Specifically, we investigate how the interdependence...
